PANEL: The F'in Debate - Live from Empire New York
Main Stage

You're in for a treat from our friends at 11:FS. Here is the format of the debate: There will be four rounds, where the panel will be discussing the following: competition, tech, brand and culture. Each team will have one lead debater who will lead a 90-second pitch on that topic, after which point the floor is open for everyone to join in, and add their expertise or just generally smack talk the other side.

PANEL: The Real Housewives (Husbands, and Partners) of RegTech
Bank Innovator Stage

With the US regulatory climate evolving with every tweet, we’re talking dramaaa... Hear from the experts on why the United States is one of the most complicated regions to launch a FinTech business, but with possibly the biggest payoff. And hear from those who have specifically focused on RegTech solutions with great success.
10:10 am
DEMOS: Hot Startups Conference demos are hand-selected by a panel of experts and there's no way to apply. They feature the latest technology, often still in the lab, from some of the top late-stage FinTech companies. Best of all.. unlike some conferences, these slots are based on pure merit and cannot be sponsored.

FIRESIDE CHAT

11:40 am
PANEL: The Challenger Banks are Coming, The Challenger Banks are Coming!
Main Stage

Capitalized to the gills, today's challenger banks can afford to spend hundreds of dollars to acquire your business. The stock pile of venture money also means they can afford not to charge you fees, even for services in which technology hasn't yet driven out the cost. How and when will we know it's working and who is really innovating in the US?

PANEL: Innovation Masterclass-Labs, Incubators, Accelerators, Sandboxes, Oh My!
Bank Innovator Stage

Survival of the fittest, and those without an innovation strategy will perish. The good news is that financial institutions now enjoy second mover advantage. This panel will serve as a masterclass in innovation programs, covering accelerators to sandboxes and everything in between.

PANEL: New Kids on the Blockchain
Main Stage

You can no longer discuss the FinTech revolution without considering the widespread implications of Blockchain. From smart contracts and settlement to underbanked identity management, this panel will offer an update on the latest trends in Blockchain.
PANEL: Data is the New Oil. Who is Drilling?
Bank Innovator Stage

There is no doubt that the use of customer data will only accelerate in FinTech. If data and AI represent the future of how financial services products will be marked and customer will be acquired, who is doing the drilling? What are the most surprising and unique datasets out there and who actually owns the data?
3:40 pm
PANEL: VC Rearview Mirror - What We Had Right and Wrong

Entrepreneurs and investors alike must constantly learn and iterate from their experience. We found a panel of straight-shooting FinTech venture veterans to share what they had right, and for each of those instances, nine they had wrong. After all, in venture it's all about outliers.
